A few days ago I wrote about three of the books I read in January and today I am going to tell you about three of the books I read in February!
February started with The Secret Library by Oliver Tearle. This book was a present from my good friend Gillian. It is a very interesting books about books (haha!). Oliver Tearle goes through notable titles that have shaped the world’s literature throughout the centuries, as well as the most astonishing or interesting paradoxes, secrets or misconceptions that are related to books or writers. Of course it is more focused on literature written in the English language, but there are small parts in the beginning and the end about books written in other languages. If you are interested in trivia about books and fascinating details, don’t hesitate to get this book in your hands!
I continued with Rage of Angels by Sidney Sheldon. This writer is a legend. Even if this book is something I would have probably enjoyed more while lying at the beach and enjoying the sun (a time when my attention is rather diverted to the beautiful surroundings), it is still a book you can’t let down until it is finished. The plot evolves fast and the characters are so nicely explained, so that the story captivated me to the point of reading it in a day! The main hero is Jennifer Parker, a lawyer who leads a difficult but absolutely interesting life.
The third and last book I would like to comment in this post is The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. Mme Ramotswe is the first female detective in Botswana. Her cases are down-to-earth about problems that affect ordinary people. The way she solves them is usually funny and leads to a good but also ethically correct end. Definitely a nice book to read!
